In her first cookbook, Rogers emphasizes that having a budget is not a weakness, and cooking good food on that budget is something to strive for. In a time where everything is being affected by inflation, including food that has traditionally been kept low-cost, knowing how to cook on a budget is a very useful skill to have. This cookbook teaches readers just that: how to have a good, home-cooked meal at a reasonable price. Rogers came to fame on the show MasterChef, and after a chapter featuring recipes similar to the food she made on the show, she showcases budget-friendly meals. Offering menus for a variety of occasions, from weeknight meals that kids will love to party pleasers, desserts, and a whole section on smoothies, she has something for everyone in this book. The kitchen how-to’s also provide tips and techniques to assist people at all levels of cooking.
VERDICT This book will appeal to the family chef, the reader who is learning to cook, and anyone who might be watching their food budget.
